Well done to Brooke Weston Academy teachers Ben Johnson and Roisin Fernando who have raised £5,500 for Anthony Nolan through a series of fundraising events.
Staff and students at the school supported a lot of their challenges, with funds raised from a mufti day and the restaurant night going to boost the charity total. The couple also sold refreshments at this year’s Oliver production, sold raffle tickets, did a bingo night and were sponsored for the London Marathon which they successfully completed.
Roisin said: ‘I’d like to thank everyone that supported us including our primary schools. Beanfield did a big bake sale which raised £600. Oakley Vale did a mufti day and gretton did a run a mile event so all of those were a huge help and much appreciated. It was a big commitment, especially with the marathon training from Christmas to mid-April. The raffle was a big success as we had so many companies that donated prizes.We had planned to raise £3,600 so we are thrilled with the total.’
